Apple + Cinnamon Oatmeal
Oatmeal is pretty much the perfect breakfast in the Fall and loaded with skin loving benefits.
Oats for the skin - boosts collagen production, reduces redness + improves your complexion overall. Promotes healthy gut bacteria which keeps your skin clear + glowing.
We like to choose sprouted oats (from One Degree Organics) which makes them easier to digest and removes the anti-nutrients that can interfere while increasing the bioavailability of nutrients.
